Four Novel Thymidine Phosphorylase Gene Mutations In Mitochondrial Neurogastrointestinal Encephalomyopathy Syndrome (Mngie) Patients
(Nature Publishing Group, 2003)
Mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalomyopathy syndrome (MNGIE) is a rare autosomal recessive neurologic disorder characterised by multiple mitochondrial DNA deletions. In this study, five Turkish IVINGIE patients ...
Alx4 Dysfunction Disrupts Craniofacial and Epidermal Development
(Oxford Univ Press, 2009)
Genetic control of craniofacial morphogenesis requires a complex interaction of numerous genes encoding factors essential for patterning and differentiation. We present two Turkish families with a new autosomal recessive ...
Metalloprotease-Mediated Cleavage Of Plexind1 And Its Sequestration To Actin Rods In The Motoneuron Disease Spinal Muscular Atrophy (Sma)
(Oxford Univ Press, 2017)
Cytoskeletal rearrangement during axon growth is mediated by guidance receptors and their ligands which act either as repellent, attractant or both. Regulation of the actin cytoskeleton is disturbed in Spinal Muscular ...
Cpg Methylation In The Fhit Regulatory Region: Relation To Fhit Expression In Murine Tumors
(Nature Publishing Group, 2004)
To determine if: (1) 5' CpG island methylation is related to Fhit inactivation; (2) there are tumor or carcinogen-specific methylation patterns, we examined 35 CpG sites in the promoter, exon and intron 1 of the mouse Fhit ...
Single-Nucleotide Polymorphisms On The Ryd5 Gene In Nasal Polyposis
(Mary Ann Liebert, Inc, 2015)
Nasal polyposis (NP) is a chronic inflammatory disease. Several genes play major roles in the pathophysiology of the disease. We analyzed RYD5 gene polymorphisms to determine the effect of these variants or their genetic ...
Worldwide Distribution And Broader Clinical Spectrum Of Muscle-Eye-Brain Disease
(Oxford Univ Press, 2003)
Muscle-eye-brain disease (MEB), an autosomal recessive disorder prevalent in Finland, is characterized by congenital muscular dystrophy, brain malformation and ocular abnormalities. Since the MEB phenotype overlaps ...
Comparison Of Hcmv Ie And Ef-1 Alpha Promoters For The Stable Expression Of Beta-Subunit Of Hexosaminidase In Cho Cell Lines
(Springer/Plenum Publishers, 2006)
Decreased Catalytic Activity And Altered Activation Properties Of Pde6C Mutants Associated With Autosomal Recessive Achromatopsia
(Oxford Univ Press, 2011)
Mutations in the gene encoding the catalytic subunit of the cone photoreceptor phosphodiesterase (PDE6C) have been recently reported in patients with autosomal recessive inherited achromatopsia (ACHM) and early-onset cone ...
X-Linked Recessive Inheritance Of Radial Ray Deficiencies In A Family With Four Affected Males
(Nature Publishing Group, 2001)
Radial ray deficiencies are frequently associated with additional clinical anomalies and have a heterogeneous aetiology. X-linked forms are extremely rare. We report a family in which four male relatives show bilateral ...
Is the Novel Sckl3 at 14Q23 the Predominant Seckel Locus?
(Nature Publishing Group, 2003)
Seckel syndrome (SCKL) is a rare disease with wide phenotypic heterogeneity. A locus (SCKL1) has been identified at 3q and another (SCKL2) at 18p, both in single kindreds afflicted with the syndrome. We report here a novel ...
